The San Diego Museum of Art (SDMA) is once again proving that art and cocktails do mix by hosting their popular sundown series, Culture and Cocktails this Thursday from 6-9pm. Combining art with refreshing cocktails has proven to be a formula that appeals to art lovers as well as those looking for a new or different venue in which to imbibe their favorite cocktail.

This month’s event will spotlight the works of famed sculptor and modernist, Alexander Calder. The Calder Jewelry exhibition showcases 90 works of art that include necklaces, bracelets, brooches, earrings and tiaras. These beautiful pieces all demonstrate Calder’s love of abstraction and his unique mastery of this wearable art form.

“Calder’s jewelry pieces are exquisite demonstrations of this major artist’s contributions to the history of art, which should not be missed,” said Derrick R. Cartwright, SDMA’s executive director. “SDMA is honored to serve as the exclusive West Coast location for two landmark exhibitions of such popular appeal and intellectual significance, first with Richard Avedon: Portraits of Power and now Calder Jewelry,” said Cartwright. “By bringing work of this caliber to San Diego, SDMA affirms the city’s place as a top art destination in the U.S.”

During Culture and Cocktails, patrons will have the opportunity to browse the famous Calder collection, listen to DJ Urban Renewal Projekt and enjoy some refreshing cocktails. Purchase your ticket today and experience a little culture with your next cocktail at SDMA.
